Tips for awesome eye makeup
Creating a standout eye look may seem scary – especially if you’re someone who only occasionally dabbles in neutral eyeshadow and the mere thought of blending three or four shades together can send you into a bit of a tailspin.
But it doesn’t have to seem like a completely daunting task. In fact, applying your eye make-up (and applying it well) can be really easy – you just need the right tools and the know-how.
Revlon’s newest eyeshadow palette, PhotoReady Primer + Shadow, features five shades to help you create the perfect eye make-up look. It even makes it easier to apply your eye make-up. How so? Well, the clever clogs at Revlon designed the palette so that it’s shaped like different parts of an eye, so you know exactly where each shade should go.
Colleen O’Neill, from Revlon Global Product Development, has some tips on how you can make the most out of each shade and achieve a glorious, show-stopping eye look.
EYE MAKE-UP APPLICATION TIP #1: after you’ve applied your primer shade (the one in the rectangle), dip the applicator brush into water and then gather the pigment from shade that’s shaped like an eye. Apply this to your lids.
EYE MAKE-UP APPLICATION TIP #2: dip the applicator brush in water again and then blend the crease shade (the one that’s just above the eye shape) into the crease of your eyes to add depth and dimension.
EYE MAKE-UP APPLICATION TIP #3: take the other applicator brush provided and use it dry to apply the highlight shade (the one that’s at the very top of the palette) onto your brow bone. Blend it in with your fingers.
EYE MAKE-UP APPLICATION TIP #4: to add a pop of glam, finish off your look with the sparkle provided (the one in the small square). Use the sparkle on your brow bone and on the inner corner of your crease to give your eye look a luxurious finish.
Too easy, right? And with eight different colour palettes to choose from, you’re pretty much guaranteed shades to suit any look, day or night!
